Point of Purchase CNC Router Review “We bought our first Techno machine back in 2012. From that day forward, we have bought 3 more CNC routers plus a laser machine. I’ve been in business for 51 years. It’s crazy to think that the Techno machines that I bought in the last 4 years now make up the majority of my business.”

HD CNC Router Review “The addition of our Techno HD 4896 CNC Router has added tremendous flexibility to our current machine shop. We can now perform routing in house that we previously had to outsource. What took us days or weeks now happens immediately. The ability to make parts as quickly as we need them is invaluable. We are confident we will recoup our investment in less than 24 months!
The staff at Techno was awesome, and more importantly, they continue to support our needs every day after the purchase.
I have no idea why anyone would select another vendor if they need a CNC Router.” Marty Fennel

HD CNC Router Review “We chose Techno for our CNC Router needs because of the value for the money and the ease of working with the machine. We know that the machine will decrease our production time and expand our capabilities. This will allow us to take on additional jobs that we would not have been able to do before.

Thank you, Techno, and have a wonderful day!”

CNC Customer Since: 2001 CNC Routers: 4896 LC and 5996 Premium Class CNC Routers The Techno LC machine was the only one that had all the technical features needed to produce the quality we were looking for at a price we could afford. We could afford a more expensive machine but we don’t believe in throwing our money around. The router has features normally found in more expensive machines like ball screws, servomotors, and a number of other critical features that deliver accuracy; making it possible to produce a very professional looking product. On several occasions we have come up with an idea for a new display in the morning then had several built and assembled by the end of the day. Building our own displays in-house makes it much easier to respond to special requests from customers. And, of course, the Techno LC router has saved us money in contract manufacturing costs that help us stay competitive in this low-margin business. Read Article >>

Company: Dodge Guitar Co. Contact: Rick Dodge Location: Tallahassee, FL Market: Guitars Shop Size: 5000 sq. ft. CNC Customer Since: 1997 CNC Router: Gantry III Tabletop CNC Router
When we decided to switch from power tools to a CNC router our main goal was to create and validate the design on the computer, which would eliminate the lengthy prototyping process. We looked at numerous expensive machines that had high costs, and then we heard about a low-cost, gantry router that had the expensive machine features, such as ball screws, servomotors, and a heavy frame. Techno Inc. the supplier of this router has a good reputation for service and support in addition to having been in business for a long time. We produce modular guitars which call for extreme accuracy. Techno’s CNC Gantry III Tabletop Router helped us make the final decision. The machine improved our new product development, allowing engineers to use computer software to create their 3-D designs. Read Article >>

Company: Culin & Colella Contact: Ray Culin Location: Mamaroneck, NY Market: Architectural Millwork Shop Size: 10,000 sq. ft. CNC Customer Since: 1990 CNC Routers: Gantry III Model 130, RG Series 5996, Premium Class 5996 Web:www.culincolella.com Portfolio Gallery:www.culincolella.com/woodworking-portfolio.html
We purchased our first router back in 1990 to produce custom round tables. It was a small machine, a Gantry III Model 130, with a process area of 41" x 49". The machine immediately put us ahead of the competition because CNC automation was not yet standard in our industry. Prior to our first machine, any complex shapes needed templates, once we had the machine we ran it for 8 hours per day producing the same shapes without templates. I specifically purchased the machine for a Custom Millwork job that we bid on and had been awarded the contract. The job consisted of work in a round house, therefore all the millwork had arched shapes that needed to blend with the utmost precision. After completion of this year long job we traded our smaller machine for the Techno Model RG Series 5996 CNC router, which could process larger parts. We have been running this machine between 8-10 hours per day for the last 14- years with only minor problems. Recently, it was becoming a concern that our 14-year old machine, which we rely on so heavily, may go down, crippling our 14-month backlog of jobs. In December of 2005, I decided to purchase another machine, a Techno Premium Class 5995 CNC router. This would be for running all cabinet boxes, and as a backup to our RG. Today we have both Techno routers running between 8-10 hours per day, producing both our complex curved parts and our simple box work. Read Article >>
Company: Custom Inlay Inc. Contact: Bryan England Location: Leitchfield, KY Market: Inlay Components Shop Size: 2,500 sq. ft. CNC Customer Since: 2004 CNC Router: LC Series 4896 CNC Router Web:http://www.custominlay.com/For years we had to cut our custom inlays by hand and with the use of pantograph machine. This process was long and tedious. Once we purchased our first CNC machine our hourly production of the Mother-of-Pearl, Abalone, wood and other inlay materials we customize, was greatly reduced. In addition to this was an increased accuracy. Yet, our overall reason for choosing a Techno CNC Router was due to their fair prices that go accordingly with size, and the various models/sizes of their machines. Our shop started off smaller so we needed more space with easy maneuverability, Techno offered this to us with our first machine, and continued with several more CNC Routers housed in our larger shop.
